I became interested in moving into Richview while I was visiting a friend who was on respite – after spending some time with her I had become enthralled by the home. I loved how open the place was and all of the wonderful activities and programs that they had to offer, such as cards, bingo and exercise programs. Before Richview, I was at my home with a hired nurse, but I never felt at ease – I was always worried about and stressing over something that really didn’t matter, but at Richview I really felt at ease and without worry. As an assisted living resident I am comforted by the care and the services that they provide. I especially like the security of having a PSW present at night time. More than this, I like that, despite being in assisted living, I can still be independent and enjoy the things I love to do, like having my grandchildren over to play scopa or bake and going to the casino. Overall, I feel free and liberated from the stress of life and I am glad that I will be able to enjoy my retirement.
